I was there and i can say that lloyd and chrome exchanged (at times) some goddam smokin' guitar riffing. for real. richard lloyd especially had the ability to completely floor me on certain songs. and the NYC crowd was ripe for the Dead Boys songs. with the first chorus of "i want you to know what love is," EVERY rocker in that room had their horns up, knowing exactly when that line was going to hit. that was cool. it was like, yeah, they're playing the song, you're recognizing it, talking to your friend beside you. then when that first chorus line came, robot-like turn to the front of the room, out of instinct, having heard that record a million times, and then up in the air! and singing along.

then the band would play these new songs (as in currently written) that would really blow, so you'd be like "man, this sucks now." but then they would come back with something as great as Sonic Reducer and the horns would go up again.

hit or miss, but the dead boys coverage was always right on.

tom and his dot dash moniker got extremely good advance press in all the NYC media outlets.

the only other show I saw was the carbonas on wednesday at maxwells, which was excellent.

Heir ick, I'm loving Mehlman these days.... he helped me tremendously last time I shot at the Beachland. he totally didn't need to, either.

Maxwells was an identical set list, but tamer because the crowd wasn't nearly as enthusiastic. I sincerely hope they don't go into a studio and record those new songs. I've now seen RFTT 5 times (including flying out to LA for their first, and what was supposed to be only, reunion show) and have to say this tour isn't as good because those new songs are such a buzzkill. If nothing else, it's still worth seeing for 30 Seconds, Solution, and Sonic Reducer. But please no "Romeo & Juliet" (a new, plodding, 5-minute ballad.)

I heard lots of complaints from people that thought they were sloppy and uninspired. I dunno, I really enjoyed them. They weren't as good as they were at Maxwell's a few years ago, but it was still great to hear them play their old tunes. That Maxwell's show I saw was one of the best concerts I've ever seen, so it'd be hard to match.
